Burma hosts uncensored international film festival

For the first time in many years Rangoon has played host to an international film festival which hasn't been censored by the military-backed government.

Pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi attended the event, which included a screening of a documentary on the 2007 anti-government protests.

Southeast Asia correspondent, Rachel Harvey, was at the gathering.
